In cooperation with the Moroccan Ministry of Youth and Sports (MJS), the OECD organised a regional conference in Rabat on 3-4 October 2017 on the theme “Bringing Youth Closer to Public Life”. The event was part of the project “Youth in Public Life: Towards an Open and Inclusive Youth Engagement” currently implemented in Morocco, Jordan and Tunisia with funding from the G7 Deauville Partnership MENA Transition Fund.

The aim of this conference was to share good practices and key mechanisms that help ensure public policies and services address the needs and aspirations of the young men and women of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Hosted by the Moroccan Ministry of Youth and Sports, this conference brought together representatives from youth associations, senior officials from ministries of youth and other ministries working on youth issues as well as non-governmental organizations from the MENA region and OECD countries.

The objective was to consolidate the exchange of good practices between the three project partner countries – Jordan, Morocco and Tunisia – as well as other MENA and OECD countries on challenges and opportunities related to the development and implementation of national youth strategies, key institutional and legislative frameworks for youth engagement and mechanisms to strengthen dialogue between youth and public authorities.
